A message about federal crimes from Vaughan C. Jones:
The federal criminal system is very different than the state system. Important
federal criminal practice concepts such as relevant conduct, Rule 35 sentence
reduction, crack/powder disparity, and safety valve are crucial to a competent
federal defense but do not exist in state practice. Federal practice rules
are far more complex and rigid. Accordingly, attorneys with little or
no experience in the federal system may be at significant disadvantage
when attempting to handle complex federal cases.
Additionally, intimate knowledge of the federal sentencing guidelines is
crucial to legal defense of federal criminal matters. Those guidelines
affect every aspect of plea discussions and trial preparation. Finally
Sentences in federal courts tend to be much higher.
